, the northwest corridor for us is linking between some pretty rural areas, but between seattle, vancouver, seattle and portland, oregon, and cha-ching oregon, we have some major business markets and the opportunity for travelers who are tourists to enjoy our rail. for us, it wasn't going to work to start from scratch. immediately institute a high speed rail line. we have too many communities linking to that west coast corridor that wanted to enjoy the benefits of rail, and wanted us as a state to his country being and putting our own state dollars into it, they wanted to see the benefits in that incremental fashion. so for us i think washington state will always be a higher speed or at least in the next 20 to 30 years, higher speed passenger rail program, but it works for us and it works for our businesses and our major communities that it links. also i'd like to say that as we work closely with burlington northern santa fe on this notion of sharing the corridor, it's a decision that we made, burlington northern santa fe has bought into it, and the notion for us in the amount of increment

in the united states. and an improm tu pot party. take a look. yep. pot party at midnight near a seattle landmark. the space needle. look at the crowds. marking the moment washington state became the first in the nation to legalize marijuana for recreational use. washington voters approved it last month's election so let me throw this at you. there's ground rules here. you have to be over the age of 21. you can have up to an ounce in your possession. no more. and despite seattle's overnight smoke fest, you are not supposed to light up a joint in public. here's a big catch. you still have to go underground to get it. growing and selling pot illegal. at least for now they are. miguel marquez has the story in seattle. miguel? >> reporter: brooke, for pot smokers here in washington state, it is a day for celebration and partying. the legalization of pot. but proponents of this initiative say this is only the first step. this is what you assume the stores will look like? >> yeah. our stores are going to have the feel of a fine cigar shop. >> reporter: jaman was at microsoft and preparing to o
magnuson's house in seattle reminisce about their days together, and some of those stories i can share on the floor and some i couldn't. but they were longtime friends. and the one story that is written about in warren magnuson's biography by shelby scates is a story about how the two of them, both appropriators, when mount saint helen's grew up, senator magnuson went to senator inouye and said, we need about a billion dollars for the cleanup of mount saint helen's. if you can manly in 198 -- imagine in 1980 what a tremendous amount of money that was. senator inouye's response was, senator magnuson, we have volcanos blowing up all the time in hawaii and we never get a dime. and senator magnuson's response was, just wait, it will be your turn soon. so these are two individuals that forged a relationship, and along with jackson, were some of the big giants of our day in the united states senate. and we certainly in the state of washington benefited greatly from senator inouye's incredible help and support. i know that he traveled to our state many times at my request and participated in
to work? you look at for instance seattle in 1993, they made condoms available in ten high schools through vending machines and baskets and school clinics and a study actually published six years later showed that condom use not only didn't increase, it decreased. how hopeful are you that this will be different in philadelphia? >> i think if you look at condoms as the only intervention, we're not going to see the right end point so condoms are part of a larger intervention, both to raise awareness about safer sex and to provide obviously a tool if young people are interested in being safer in their sexual behavior. what you have to realize is that ten years ago, we had higher rates of condom use among young people than we currently do. at the same time infection has gone up dramatically in the city so while we don't think condoms are the full answer, we believe they are part of the answer and an important part of that answer as we and pa of the health department and people who educate our children in schools need to pay attention to. >> it is an interesting approach. i wish you the best of
today. davis has a concussion, and with an injured elbow to davis. manning him, for his a seattle on sunday will not be back until next season manning, tore his a c l one- and the niners first round draft pick. he has yet to catch a pass and randy moss and michael crabtree will also be in the mix. >> we are ready and start a great career i am willing roof for ready mawson michael truck tree. i do not want i am willing to-route- he is a great player with the speed, quickness and you want to get the ball in his hands. >> i will maintain my composure. just do what i do best. >> if the niners beat cardinals, they will also have a two-seat. however, to roll pri to seat-a two-seed wild if the niners beat the cardinals. if i could weigh in for just a second it does not make any sense to start however, prior has not palyed much but i say give pryor a shot and the warriors leading the jazz with curry doing well and the clippers won last night over the nuggets and the best team... billy crestal is the biggest fan. newcastel javiar hernandez to give manchester a victory now a 7 point lead fo
is a painkiller. what do you see in seattle? >> if you pull a group of people together from this community, someone in that group will have had a friend, loved one, who has had difficulty with a prescription drug or potentially died from that. >> reporter: his unit responds to 45 calls a month for overdoses of these types of medications. it can be difficult to tell if it's painkiller or heroin, because they come from the same ingredient and do the same sort of thing to your body. >> aside from needle tracks in the arms, someone who has had an overdose of pain medication like that, they can look very much the same. >> very much. they can be unconscious from medication that they think is relatively safe for them because of instead of getting on the street they get it from a pharmacist. possible drug overdose. these people are suffering from chronic pain. they know that a little bit of pain medication helps, so maybe a lot would help a lot more. >> reporter: when we arrive, another medic is on the scene. >> somewhere in that parking garage there is a call about someone having a drug overdose.
to the 1960, which was held in seattle. many of you probably were born then. so there was this modern monorail project to ferry people around the world fair in the investors of the project at the time offered to build a monorail system is a pilot program in los angeles, traversing the harbor freeway. dad thought it was a good idea but couldn't get any of the other city fathers are county fathers to agree that this is a good investment. nobody at that time so if you ever get people out of their beloved cars. so that monorail now circles disneyland's magic kingdom in anaheim consummately. but that is a reminder to me that the biggest mistake we've made so far is not helping major transportation projects that the public can use, we'll use it will get them out of their cars. in california i believe and i think the voters of proved that time and again that high-speed rail will reduce congestion, will create jobs and will modernize the entire's tastes real system. it will reduce congestion, which is a key issue for california. transportation congestion is strangling business potential of our state a
. >> stephanie: let's go to david in seattle. you're on with hal. >> caller: hi, steph. they're taking away our stations. the tweaky heads are giving me a headache with this union talk. it is like a big wave of propaganda. i don't understand any of it. you don't have a right to collective bargain but yet somehow scalia can make the other arguments? the main thing i was talking about, i don't hear obama talking about the $750 subsidies for oil companies when they start bringing up entitlements, they want to go after medicaid and everything right away. nobody is talking about the biggest leverage of money. >> that was actually brought up this morning in a couple of press conferences directly about that. and pelosi has hinted at that as well. why is that not on the table. that is a -- that is a corporate entitlement. p.s., did you hear we got paid back for the final bailout thing and the fed made a profit on that as well? >> stephanie: yeah. we were saying -- we were talk beefing the -- with charlie pierce about how people
than new york. los angeles, their minimum wage is $8, i think. i've lived in both states. seattle, these big expensive cities have the lowest minimum wage. you go to other states where living expenses are a little lower and they have a minimum wage, so i think congress needs to move minimum wage a little higher. it is a comparison between living expenses and that states minimum-wage is completely ridiculous. host: brian in connecticut, republican caller. caller: good morning. i guess my feeling on this is i don't think there's any place for the federal government to mandate to private businesses to increase the minimum wage. i think that, along with the added cost of the new taxes with obamacare, companies are already having to and did older books around. they are already cutting hours to get people under 30 hours. it does not add anything, if anything -- i don't think minimum-wage was never supposed to be -- the idea of getting your first job at minimum wage, you were supposed to get that and then move on to a better job. by raising the minimum wage, the federal government's idea

are in seattle. when boeing goes to washington to give a contract for the next generation jet or whatever, they may get it. they do get it. but there are some things attached. like for instance, we want a factory that builds the wings are the engines in tennessee or missouri or arizona. this is an act of recycling surplus so the surpluses of the surplus state can continue to be created, produced. fixed exchange rates. that gold standard creates a a degree of growth, together with the emergence of state corporations like edison that allows the bankers to run riot, to bring value to the peasant and to recycle. and that is what led to the collapse of 1939, which was that generation's version of 2008. when that collapse happened, what you had was unsustainable debts coming irresponsible banking -- unsustainable that's, irresponsible banking. you had the collapse of the currency. it is what we have not now in greece, exactly the same. the generation that came to power in 1932 were exceptionally fearful of what would happen to the united states of america after 1944. because they very much fear
